Tater Tot Casserole

Mmm Mmm Mmm. As promised to DD (and my growling belly) we went to Aldi after Gymboree yesterday. Which means that for at least a couple days we have a fully stocked fridge.

I bought ingredients to make our favorite meal. Please remember that up until I found this recipe my greatest accomplishment was pancakes. I am not a cook, I can read a recipe, but I am not a cook. So, when I cooked this my family was amazed. It actually tastes like a home cooked meal from mom! I have even fed it to guests!! They were of course surprised that we werent having pizza-again.

And here is how you make it (I already have it memorized!!):

Preheat oven to 350
Brown 1 lb of hamburger, drain
Mix one can of evaporated milk, one can cream of mushroom soup & one can cream of chicken soup together in a bowl.
In a 9x13 dish, put the hambuger on the bottom, then top with a bag of frozen tator tots, then pour the milk & soup mixture over the top.
Cook for 1 hour

I was able to get meat at 1.99/lb so the ingredients to make this (at Aldi) cost 5.25 plus tax. It fed us all till we were full and we have just as much as we ate in leftovers.

I got the recipe from the Duggars :). It is posted here:

A woman after my own heart. Tator tot casserole. I've been wanting to make this but haven't just run across a recipe and I'm not very inventive in the kitchen. This is what I'm making for dinner tonight now! Thanks!!

Lisa I love tater tot casserole. I haven't made it in a really long time though. Think I will be making it next week sometime for dinner.
